In my contribution I discuss, both theoretically and empirically, that for the subjective constitution as an active, self-confident social citizen the reference to one’s own work as useful for society is crucial. Empirical research shows that workers develop a strong normative linkage between their work and its societal content on the one hand and the social and political rights they refer to in their daily working-life, individually or collectively.
